Well Shark, you've done it again! Once again your posting up has led to me getting out for a ride in the woods! And today WAS another great day in the woods!  Once again you also gave me my first tour of another trail system,  BC 2-3 summers ago.  Thanks to you and your buds for offering to tow a couple of newbies to VB around.  It sure made it nice to just ride and not stop constantly to try and navigate the maze!  Even though the maze had a couple of dead ends, that was part of the fun!  Thanks again for the heads up on VB!  See ya out there, somewhere...  JS

 Even though I live a mile from Town Run, I consider Brown County my regular ride.  I'm guessing I've been down there 40-50 times this year.  Ridden Town Run less this year, with the shorter route much of the spring/ summer, but probably rode it at least 20 times.  And I did trainng rides on the Monon all spring and summer at least 50 rides.  :P
Add to that the DINO coarses at least twice... and maybe I need to switch to the 11 in 2011 forum.  It's been a good year of riding and looking forward to more...  BC on Sunday? ;D

I have only ridden alone while night riding and always find it very exhilarating!  I've also only ridden at BC where I think the size of the place adds to the feeling of "being out there" and maybe a little exposed and vulnerable.  I definitly slow down and play it safe.  The darkness does play with your mind a little as I often found myself thinking about the "big cat" people were talking about a year or so ago!  I also enjoyed the deer skull that was placed at the bridge on GV a couple of weeks ago.  Also, on my first ever night ride a couple of years ago I was constantly stopping to check out all the deer "eyeballs" that were looking at me along the way!  Very eerie! Very fun!

 I used the Thudbuster for a little while until I too went to a full suspension.  It works differently than the usual telescopic type and has interchangeable polymers to adjust the length of travel based on body weight.  Might be more expensive though, not sure about the others cost.  I still have mine if your interested,  PM me.
